Look up! The Banners are coming!

The winners of the eighth annual banner launch have been announced.

The winners of the eighth annual banner launch have been announced.

The big reveal is taking place at The Arts Station on Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m. 

This year, more than 100 artists entered well over 100 different pieces making it very difficult for the keen team of adjudicators to narrow it down to just 36.  But it has been done!

From painting, quilting, photography, pottery and glass, the artists and their mediums know no bounds.  The Banner Project highlights the diversity in all of the artists.  The variety and depth of the artists deserve to be celebrated and the Banner Project accomplishes just that making its eighth year one of its most successful yet.

The completed banners will be displayed at The Arts Station on the reveal day before being hung along Victoria Avenue in downtown Fernie.  During this time, people can sponsor a banner for $100.  After being on display for one year on Victoria Avenue then another year lining the highway, the banner will be the sponsor’s to keep.

Spectators and interested sponsors alike are welcome to view all of the banners during the Launch but, if something strikes your fancy and you are interested in a banner, you need to act quickly.  Banners are a hot commodity and are fantastic attributes to any yard or garden.
